The Clayton Cenotaph was built in 1997/1998 to honour the fallen heroes from the Clayton area. It was built with the support of the Almonte Legion and the seniors of Linn Bower in Clayton.
A legion member, Comrade Lt Edmonds designed the monument and Joey Edmonds built it. Funding for the cenotaph and brass plaque was provided by the Almonte Legion and local community members.
It was dedicated on 11 Nov, 1998 and a Remembrance Day Parade and ceremony are held annually.
